The following stories from Alarcón are offered to the student of Spanish in the belief that the easy style, the interest of the narrative, and the incidental sidelights that they throw on Spanish life and history will make the book a welcome one in the earlier stages of study.

...

Los bandidos sintieron moverse algo dentro de su pecho, pues se miraron unos a otros...; y viendo que todos estaban pensando la misma cosa, uno de ellos se atrevió a decirla....

30 --¿Qué dijo?--preguntó el Capitán general, profundamente afectado por aquel relato.

--Dijo: «Caballeros, lo que vamos a hacer no lo sabrá nunca Parrón....»

--Nunca..., nunca...--tartamudearon los bandidos. (p8)

--Márchese V., buen hombre....--exclamó entonces uno que hasta lloraba.

Yo hice también señas al segador de que se fuese al instante.

El infeliz se levantó lentamente.

05 --Pronto.... ¡Márchese V.!--repitieron todos volviéndole la espalda.

El segador alargó la mano maquinalmente.

--¿Te parece poco? (gritó uno.)--¡Pues no quiere su 10 dinero![8-1]--Vaya..., vaya.... ¡No nos tiente V. la paciencia!

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
